Combining cycloisomerization with trienamine catalysis: a regiochemically flexible enantio- and diastereoselective synthesis of hexahydroindoles

Author affiliations

Abstract

The synthesis of polysubstituted hexahydroindoles through trienamine-organocatalyzed cycloadditions of pyrrolidinyl dienals, prepared by palladium-catalyzed cycloisomerization, is reported. The cycloadditions of this novel class of dienals proceed with excellent levels of enantio- and diastereoselectivity, with the regioselectivity of cycloaddition with respect to the tethering ring readily tuned through design of the cycloisomerization substrate. This work culminates in the first examples of double-stereodifferentiating trienamine catalysis, where catalyst stereocontrol dominates facial selectivity in the cycloaddition, affording azacyclic products that are specifically functionalized at every position.
